Direct Bill ID Request for Connexxus

The Direct Bill ID Request for Connexxus is used for business-related airfare to be directly charged to Director’s departmental account when making arrangements for faculty, student, staff, and hosted guests.  Once a direct bill ID is created, this allows the traveler to officially book airfare either online or through a travel agent by phone (https://travel.ucop.edu/connexxus/). ** The travel pre-approval process within departments, especially when using federal funds, has NOT changed. Please contact your department Budget Administrator or department manager if you would like to use Connexxus to book your airfare.**
